Following on from gigs in Northampton, Wellingborough and Bedford so far this year the Dog will be straying to a number of festivals this summer, starting with the Delapre Beer Festival on 21st May. Set in the grounds of the former Abbey the Beer Festival has become a regular in Northampton’s calendar and we’ll be taking to the stage mid-afternoon, so come on down for a pint!
June is busy! Friday 17th sees us setting up the basket at The Guilsborough Festival which coincides with the start of the Northampton Music Festival, now in its 8th year. For NMF16 The Dog will be opening the All Saints Portico Stage with an acoustic set on Sunday 19th June. Pray for sun for us – it’s a beautiful setting on a nice day!! After our set, why not check out the scores of other bands and genre’s of music playing around the town – from classical to folk, heavy metal to hip-hop?! The following week we’ve been invited back to the Wappenham Beer Festival again – that’s Saturday 25th June: we’ll need a beer after a month like that!!
Plans for July and September are sketchy but we’ll let you know when they firm up. In the meantime, feel free to join us on the 23rd April at The Albion Brewery on Bridge Street, Northampton. It’s a fabulous venue and you can hold a pint of history in your hand – Phipps, that is!!
